Movie Info

Matvey has just one objective: to gain entry to his girlfriend's parents' apartment and kill her father Andrey with a hammer to restore her honor. But all is not as it initially seems, and Matvey's attempts to bludgeon the family patriarch to death don't quite go to plan as Andrey proves a more formidable -- not to mention ruthless -- opponent than he anticipated... and Matvey, for his part, proves stubbornly unwilling to die.

It's simultaneously so bloody and gory, but there is a simplicity and a playfulness to the structure... A lot of fun, but definitely not for the squeamish.

When the viscera is flying, this approach works beautifully; even when you're watching Matvey get brutalized through hands clasped over your eyes, you're still watching.

"Why Don't You Just Die!" is too cartoonish and glib to have much to say about Russia or about genre films in general. But it is stylish and snazzy - a confident throwback to the knowing exploitation pictures of yesteryear.

Sokolov's debut feature is a clever, bloody as hell, often hilarious virtuoso exercise in excruciating harm-doing among mendacious people.

Why Don't You Just Die! is stylish enough, but it's rarely as clever as it is busy.

Why Don't You Just Die! is an accomplished film that makes the very most of its limited sets, without seeming constricted or stagey.
